ABSTRACT Hydroponics is a popular technique of growing crops in nutrient solution with using any soil based growing medium under precise climatic controlled condition. It has tremendous possibility for revolutionizing agriculture system not only in developed counties but in also in developing countries. Hydroponics system also exhibit better growth of plants as compared to crop cultivation done following the conventional system of cultivation. Moreover as the hydroponic system is done in controlled conditions, so it is possible to practice cultivation throughout the year irrespective of prevailing outdoor condition. In recent times, hydroponic vegetable production system is getting popularity in urban area where it has been adapted by many progressive growers. Still implementation of the hydroponic system by regular grower has some challenges as limited study has been done to evaluated quality of water on growth of plants in hydroponics. This study demonstrates possibility of the application of hydroponic system for farming. Hydroponics is futuristic system of agriculture as it makes it possible to cultivate crop on nutrient solution. It has tremendous possibility to be explored in areas where soil is severely affected and is not suitable for agriculture. It is also a boon for urban areas, where land availability for agriculture purpose is very limited. With proper understanding and standardization of hydroponic system it can be effectively used for sustainable agriculture.
ABSTRACT Any layman knows about (‘Muh Paka Khur Paka’), the Hindi language version of the Foot & Mouth Disease (FMD) but they do not realize its contagiousness & fatal nature among live-stocks especially among milch cows. There is prevention of FMD through a vaccine but there is no treatment in veterinary science. The current case is a case of FMD in a Jersy cow or Bos Taurus as they are scientifically called aged 4 years with a 4 months-old calf weighing about 120 kilograms. FMD has been managed traditionally by use of natural soda ash solution for washing the lesions while some communities have applied honey & finger millet flour to the lesions (Gakuya, D. W. et al 2011). These traditional medicines were also reported earlier (Molan, P.C. 1992; Molan, P.C. 2001; & Hegde, P. S). In India, farmers usually make soft fodder & astringents for the suffering animal as a cure. The case describes the effectiveness of Homoeopathic medicines against the FMD virus thereby depicting that Homoeopathy is not only effective for humans but also in veterinary sciences. The article describes the case as it evolved while detailing out the treatment or care given to the cattle during a fortnight period.The article is an effort to disseminate the message among the veterinary professionals & care taker of the Cattles so that all the cases follow a pluralistic approach where the preventive & supportive methods of veterinary science is complemented with the curative methods of Homoeopathy.
